    Ms Harrison knows how to throw a reader back in time and keep them there in a fantastic story From the descriptions of the scenes, clothing, and even the vehicles, I was flung into the past as I read Chase and Ava s romance.Ava is a confident woman filled with fire, sass, courage and talent She knew exactly who she was and what she wanted even though she didn t know how to get there with her art The book initially meets her in an argument and that s how we get to know her throughout the story, not afraid to stand up for what s hers She had a true grit and strength, straight as an arrow with her personal morals without being overly judgmental when it came to other people s lives I really enjoyed this about her because it showed her tolerance for the way other people lived their lives and how she could still remain strong in her beliefs.Chase oh my goodness The man was fine, smart, funny and just plain delicious He d taken risks in life and regretted that he d lost his baby brother in the process, but not how he d lived Chase was a multi dimensional character who swept me up with his charm The kind of man ...
